Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass.
Pours a lovely copper color with a foamy, two-finger head that quickly dissipated and left some spotty lacing.
Great aroma! Lots of citrus and floral notes hitting my nose.
The taste is really nice. Bitter pine and grapefruit pith up front with a hint of lemon and a bitter, yet refreshing finish.
Mouthfeel is medium and slightly sticky.
Overall, really tasty and a very refreshing IPA that I just wanted to keep on drinking.

Appearance- Caramel/amber color with mostly clear visibility. Pours a one finger, foamy white head.

Aroma- Very big aroma coming from this with resinous pine and citrus shining through. Very little malt aroma to speak of, maybe a little sweetness, but the hops dominate.

Taste- Once again the pine is most noticeable with the initial sip providing a big slap of bitterness. As it progresses fruitier citrus flavors come in while the pine continues to play a big role in the flavor. Some minimal caramel malt sweetness is present, but the hops are clearly the centerpiece.

Feel- A little resinous at first, but finish is very thin. Makes for an easy drinker, but a fuller finish would be ideal.

Overall- This is a really enjoyable ipa thats big on the pine and citrus flavors that linger with tons of resinous hop flavor and feel. Definitely reminiscent of some west coast ipas. Really lacking a body in the finish, which is only a minor complaint. Worth trying, but it doesn't do much to stand from the pack.
